Never-before-seen works, writings and photographs offer insight into the life of Jean-Michel Basquiat as a teenager in New York in the late 1970s.
A look at Jean-Michel Basquiat’s life pre-fame, and how New York City, the times, the people, and the movements around him formed the artist he became. Director Sara Driver worked closely and collaboratively with her friends and other artists who emerged from that scene: Nan Goldin, Jim Jarmusch, James Nares, Fab Five Freddy, Lee Quinones, Luc Sante, and many others. As they participated in the film with their thoughts, period film footage, music, images, and anecdotes of their young friend, they helped visually tell the story of Jean-Michel’s downtown NYC –pre Aids, President Reagan, the real estate and art boom, and before anyone was motivated by money and ambition. The definition of fame, success and power was very different than today — to be a penniless but published poet was the height of success, until everything changed in the early 1980’s. This is New York City’s story before that change.
“”Boom for Real” pinpoints the moment when the graffiti world pivoted, without knowing it, into the art world.” – Variety
“Basquiat’s art – raw, inventive, socially engaged – continues to speak to us even as the artist himself cannot.” – New York Times
